Nassau County police are searching for a trio wanted for an attempted armed home invasion in New Cassel on Thursday morning, authorities said.
A 30-year-old man was in his Bond Street home when the three assailants kicked in the rear door and one of men flashed a handgun shortly before 8 a.m., police said.
The victim retreated to the basement and the home invaders fled empty handed after unsuccessfully trying to break through that door, police said.
The victim was not injured and there was no description of the suspects.
Third Squad detectives request anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
